It’s been a decade since Carya Amara started Earthrid with the visceral electronic album Vestigial Digital
. It was followed by two retrospectives of music dating back as far as 1980, Extinction Frequency
and Tales of the Unattractive
. Since then there have been collaborative projects (released on Earthrid) and related musical ventures but no solo Carya Amara… but now here at last is The Late Carya Amara
Anyone (and there were quite a few) who was perplexed by the diverse approaches of previous releases is unlikely to find this one any easier to decode – but the receptive listener, maybe armed with a good pair headphones, will find this to be an immersive (if sometimes chilly) experience. Released in summer in the UK, the album’s snowy themes are definitely unseasonal… but did you really want to wait any longer for The Late Carya Amara

The Late Carya Amara by Carya Amara
I have to say that I am not really into this album. The production isn't bad but most of the writing ideas on The Late Carya Amara are not at all very good in my opinion. The Late Carya Amara is an album that is dominated by cold noises and ambiances. Even though it has some rhythm and melody the majority of the rest of it all lacks any catchy Pop style while also failing at being very enjoyable through its ambient aesthetics. I give this album one star.
